Costa Rica Night Life


While Costa Rica's most notable attraction is Le Loft Nightclub, Jaco, Costa Ricaby far the wildlife, many people on vacation here look forward to taking advantage of the beautiful beaches, relaxing by the pool with a drink in hand, great food and of course, Costa Rica's infamous nightlife.

Costa Rica appeals to many by offering many forms of adult nightlife and entertainment (bars, discos, casinos, gentleman’s clubs, singles bars, etc.), but in this article we are going to focus on the Costa Rican cities known for their nightlife, bars, and clubs; featuring great music, dancing, and ever flowing drinks.


1. Jaco

In the past few years the Costa Rican city of Jaco has become renowned as one of the top tourist destinations in the world. Located in the Puntarenas Province on Costa Rica’s central Pacific coast, Jaco offers its visitors world-class beaches, luxury hotels, great surfing, incredible bio-diversity, eco and adventure tours of all types, and of course, an incredible selection of bars and clubs leading the way for Jaco’s legendary nightlife. As Jaco has seen a recent boom in development over the last decade, so has its nightlife. With new clubs like The Loft catering to high-end clients, and classics like the Beatle Bar always in full swing, it is no wonder Jaco tops the list for Costa Rican nightlife.

2. San Jose

If I were basing Costa Rica’s best nightlife on the numberVertigo Nightclub, San Jose, Costa Rica of bars/clubs and people, San Jose would be the undisputed champion; however, when people travel to Costa Rica they are looking for beaches and nature, neither of which you will find in San Jose. What you will find though, is some of the best salsa clubs, discothèques, dive bars, and low key watering holes in Costa Rica. Whether you are looking down town, by the college in the San Pedro area, or the part of town commonly referred to as “Gringo Gulch”; maybe it’s dancing at Salsa 54, electronica at Vertigo, or karaoke at Castro’s bar, whatever your nightlife desire is, visitors are guaranteed to find something that suits their style in Costa Rica’s capital city of San Jose.

3. Puerto Viejo

This is the first and only time Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast makes an appearance on the list. Located in the Limon province, Puerto Viejo could be considered the reggae capital of Costa Rica, and its club and bar scene definitely reflect this. Puerto Viejo attracts tens of thousands of surfers each year to its incredible waves that are among the best in, not only in Costa Rica, but the world. And when they are not in the water you can be sure that these surfers are enjoying one of the many local watering holes and clubs at night. From the popular Johnny’s Place and Stanford’s, Puerto Viejo has a lot more to offer those who make the trip for more than big waves. Its laid back vibe, great food (many all natural and organic restaurants), and budget friendly prices keeps many tourists coming back year after year.

4. Tamarindo

Located on the Province of Guanacaste on Costa Rica’sAqua Nightclub, Tamarindo, Costa Rica Pacific coast, the beach town of Tamarindo is known more for it National Park and sea turtle hatcheries than for its nightlife. But with an increase in eco tourists, vacationers and surfers coming to enjoy Tamarindo’s beautiful beaches, comes the increased need for places for them to spend their evenings. This is where the recent increase in local bars and clubs come in. Where better to spend your evening than down on the main strip at one of Tamarindo’s many fine restaurants and bars. With new supper clubs like Aqua, and places like the Crazy Monkey Bar, (featured on “Wild on E!"), many tourists who come to Tamarindo for the wildlife, are staying for its nightlife. Watch for Tamarindo to climb even higher on this list in the next few years due to the attention the area is being given by ex-patriots due to its very reasonable real estate market.

5. Playa del Coco

Located on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast, Playa del Coco becomes the second town in the Province of Guanacaste to make the top list of Costa Rican nightlife. While Playa de Coco doesn’t have the largest selection (or fanciest bars) of the remaining Costa Rican cities, what Playa del Coco lacks in numbers it makes up for in quality. With the two most popular clubs in town across the street from each other, a large number of ex-patriot friendly hang outs, food vendors and people drinking in the street between, Playa del Coco may set the mark when it comes to quality choices of where to spend your evenings.
